WORLD NEWS Open for superyacht charter AUSTRALIA: The Australian parliament has passed legislation through the Senate enabling foreign superyachts to charter in Australian waters. The special recreational vessel legislation will allow superyachts use of a coastal trading temporary licence, allowing commercial charter activities. Vessels will be protected from importation and be required to pay 10% of GST on the value of the charter. The legislation came into effect in December 2019 while work to amend the Coastal Trading Act to cater for superyachts in the long term continues to be progressed. Changes to the Coastal Trading Act have gone to parliament in 2015 and again in 2018 without successfully passing the Senate. In order to allow the superyacht industry to take advantage of upcoming events in the Pacific, such as the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and the America’s Cup in Auckland in 2021, the Australian Government introduced the legislation separating superyachts from the previous disagreements over coastal cargo operations. This enabled bipartisan support, which allowed passage of the legislation in near record time and finalised on the last day of parliament for the year. David Good, CEO of Superyacht Australia, said: “We have been working tirelessly to achieve this for many years for industry. The ability to charter in Australia now supplements charter in New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji and Papua New Guinea where superyacht charter is already permitted and reinforces the South Pacific as a destination of choice for superyachts.” Tenders for Itea GREECE: The Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) is inviting Expressions of Interest for the concession of Itea Marina on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth. The tender covers port operation services (including berthing) and upland development, and is for a period of at least 35 years. The existing marina has 146 berths for vessels up to 30m (98ft) in length and has 2.47ha (6.1 acres) of upland. It is well positioned to accommodate yachts crossing the Corinithian Gulf en route from the Aegean to the Ionian Sea via the Corinth Canal. Itea has experienced significant tourism growth since 2015. Enquiries should be sent to: Pontoon extension completes at Port Louis GRENADA: The new 90-berth extension at Port Louis Marina, built by Marinetek for Camper & Nicholson’s Marinas (C&NM), was completed last November. The Grenada Tourism Authority joined with the marina team to officially open the pontoons. “We have seen an increase of demand for seasonal and visiting yachts to Port Louis Marina, and the offer of the new berthing is to better facilitate charter yachts visiting the island of Grenada, and further support sailing events and regattas with more berthing solutions,” said marina manager Charlotte Bonin. “We are delighted to open in time for the Caribbean season.” The new berths range from 12 to 22m (39 to 72ft) on two piers. Triple berths have been incorporated to cater for the increasing demand for catamaran berths. All berths have access to power and water via anodised aluminium Quantum pedestals supplied by Rolec Marina Services. A selection of the berths offers both US and European sockets. Rolec also installed its BerthMaster electricity and water management system. Owned and managed by C&NM, Port Louis Marina overlooks the historic capital of St George’s and is designed to reflect traditional Creole architecture. It makes a significant contribution to local tourism. - January/February 2020 11
